How can energy change?
Chapter 5, Lesson 2
I will know how energy changes form. I will know how electricity changes to light and gives off heat.
filament- a thin-coiled resistor that transforms electrical energy into heat and light energy.
friction- a force that acts when two surfaces rub together.
resistor- an object that uses energy in a circuit.
Light from Electricity
Televisions, computers, and light bulbs all use electricity. These objects are resistors that use the energy in a circuit. Most resistors transform electrical energy to heat and light.
The filament inside a light bulb becomes so hot it glows, also giving off light.
Heat from Electricity
When electrical current passes through a resistor, it often gives off heat. This change is why electrical wires sometimes become hot.
The resistors of some appliances get so hot that they produce a red glow. This glow happens in toasters.
Electrical, light, and energy of motion are some forms of energy.
The energy of motion can cause friction and give off heat.
Electrical energy can change to light energy and give off heat.
